Nice space and cozy ambiance in downtown Bethlehem. This was my 2nd time visiting - menu is a bit limited and not overwhelmingly original, but the carnitas tacos and chicken enchiladas we ordered were good and arrived quickly.

First time at Urbano on February 27 and it won't be our last! Loved the ambience of the space and I really appreciated the spacing they had between tables for social distancing with COVID restrictions, I definitely felt comfortable eating indoors. The food was delicious from the yummy cocktails (mojito was best I've ever had), the fresh guacamole, and the pollo tacos and pollo quesadilla which I definitely recommend. Our waitress was so nice and attentive which we greatly appreciated (I can't remember her name or I would have mentioned it). Reservations are definitely needed with limited seating. My boyfriend and I will definitely go back, particularly when it gets warmer and we can sit along Main Street. Check out Urbano!

It was my birthday and Urbano was the perfect place to spend it with my friends. The margaritas and guac were great! Everyone was very friendly. I would definitely recommend Urbano.

Waited 1.5 hours and when we asked where our meals were, the waitress said not even close to being done. They were overbooked and understaffed.

Very bad experience at this restaurant... I believe what happened is there was too much take out for the resturant to handle...we waited almost two hours for our food...my daughter her first course and it was literally inedible.....then the dinners were brought to the table...again..they were serving three people and they brought two dinners because they ran out of what my husband ordered...this was seriously after waiting two hours... I will not return and I question going to any others restaurants owned by this company. I felt horrible for our server.. Nothing was her fault she kept uss updates and apologized so many times and we reassured her that she did nothing wrong.... They were so backed up that people were coming in for takeout and waiting an additional forty minutes past the quoted time...
I know this because unfortunately where we were seated there were constantly five or more people way to close to our table ...

First timers and we were not disappointed! We had the whole place to ourselves. The margaritas were perfect! I got the steak quesadilla which I still cannot stop thinking of! Our server made fresh Guacamole right in front of us. He was polite and very attentive to us, always refilling our waters and chips. Giving us extra napkins through our stay. I didn’t want to leave! Thank you for the best experience we will be back. Covid compliant.

Service was absolutely terrible me and my wife waited 35 minutes before we could even see our waitress. Once the food order was taken, it seemed like we weren’t even there anymore. Food was cold and did not taste good. Service was horrendous

Face masks worn under nose by a server and the bartender wore his on his chin. This was on the eve of PA COVID closing...??? Forgotten table in a corner. No server for 30 min and no drinks another 20 min. Rice bowls were dry. Wanted to like it 😕

The service was horrendous. It was almost 2 hours after being seated that we got our food. The manager told us that the kitchen was backed up but couldn’t explain how people seated after us had gotten their food, eaten, and were gone and we were still waiting. Making excuses doesn’t work for me.

The tacos were very poorly made and thrown on a plate without any decent presentation. Not worth getting again for the money and won’t be back anytime soon

I was disappointed that I was told they don't make daiquiris. BUT they could make margaritas???? I don't like margaritas. I don't understand why one frozen drink can be made but not another? There was no rum?

My son and I were looking for a basic taco salad...ground beef, lettuce, tomato, perhaps in a shell. We were told no ground beef. We were happy though that they could still make us a basic salad with grilled chicken. Not the same. We also wanted queso on it but were told we had to order the entire queso appetizer to put the queso on our salad. :(

A bit disappointing-attempted to order three different items off a limited menu to be told they were out on a Friday evening. Felt disorganized. What we ate was very good.

We love going to Urbano! It's always a great experience. Our server Meredith was wonderful and taught us old birds how to use air drop to share the picture of their menu. She was very attentive to us.

The only drawback that I have is one that I've experienced in the past regarding the lighting. It is very dark in the restaurant and old eyes have difficulties seeing in low light. But that won't keep us from coming back.

Good to see the precautions they are putting in place to continue to serve customers during Covid.

Wait staff was less than attentive. Wrong drink orders with no offer to correct or credit from bill. Felt very rushed at first and then minimal check back to see how we were doing. However, the food was great as always.

Overall the food was OK, however, the chicken in the nachos, the rice bowls and the quesadilla was substandard. It was mostly dark meat with bones, knuckles and other inedible pieces. Serving sizes are on the small size for what you pay. Disappointing.

We ate outside next to the loud traffic, so the ambiance was tough. The food was a little bland, compared to other Mexican food I’ve had.

I've always loved this place, it's a fun addition to downtown. It was mildly busy, a few open tables outside while we ate. While I miss tableside mashing of the guac, it still has a better flavor than most I've found in the area. My margarita, as always, was awesome.

However I was rather disappointed this time with everything else. We rarely saw our server, and had to ask for napkins and more water after finishing our food because it was never offered. The carnitas in the tacos was also a lot more dry than expected, though good flavor.

I will be back, I just hope it's like my previous visits instead of this one.

Food was very good and I thought pricing was fair. Appetizer, multiple (alcoholic) beverages, entrees and ala carte sides for 2 was just under $75.00. Server seemed like she was spread a little thin, but she was friendly and knowledgeable. Decent amount of vegetarian options on menu. We will return.

Food took forever to arrive at table, Apps and main dishes arrived together, food was cold, my wife ordered fish tacos and received pork tacos but it took over 25 minutes for the waiter to come and ask us if our food was ok. Waiter never refreshed drinks. Nothing was good enough to warrant another trip back there especially with all the other amazing restaurants on Main Street! Save yourself some time and go to Moes! There are more options and the food is way better!
